We first met Bompas & Parr when they told us about their Breathable CocktailSam Bompas and Harry Parr are artists in London who frequently work with food as a medium.  They are also known as the Jelly Mongers because of their elaborate architectural models made of jello.

They recently partnered with Michael Cirino of A Razor a Shiny Knife and Fiona Leahy Design for the Black Banquet at the London Design Festival.  They served eight courses of black food.

Bompas and Parr are also working on an Architectural Punchbowl.  They plan to create a punch bowl in a building.  It will be so big, that you can row a boat across it.  They have a contest, open to the public, to find a recipe for the punch.
